我們搭了十幾個小時(或更長)的長途巴士從廣西三江經黎平來到貴州的肇興。貴州多貧瘠山地,所以政府相關單位對這個地方也無心建設,整個路況坑坑洞洞,又加上道路皆泥路,車輛呼嘯而過時,沙塵也跟著滿天飛舞。因此當我們到達肇興時已灰頭土臉!

在中國,長途巴士有上下兩層睡舖。座票一售完,縱使你要多花錢買站票,售票人員是不會賣給你的。我在想,這可能是為了安全考量來立法的,因為有些落後地區路況糟得無法想像,司機開車技術或許一流,但在很多急彎險處他們似乎不知道車子還有煞車可用。常常這些時候,司機的速度仍保持不變。

 

我看看車上的其他乘客還是一副處變不驚,老神在在的神情想必這是這裡的開車文化。唯獨我和奇異果先生倆人面面相覷,一副大驚小怪狀。

 

有機會搭乘他們的長途睡舖巴士一定要記得選上舖,除非你特別喜歡五味雜陳的鞋臭襪臭在你鼻間停滯不去,否則下舖真的是不得不的選擇啊。

 

不過在肇興這樣的一個地方,竟意外發現這裡竟有一家比薩店,我們想當然爾也興沖沖地去一探究竟。

杉木屋,據說這裡是木造房子最多的地方。這一條河貫穿全村,河邊景色仍保持舊有風貎。

We went back to SanJiang but missed the bus to ZhaoXing. Buses here only run twice a day so we were forced to stay the night.

 

ZhaoXing is an impressive city with many of English signs which lead to realise that many foreigner tourists come here. We had our first pizza in China. Not as good as I could get in Taiwan but I was satisfied.

 

We met the Switzerland couple again as well as the Dutch family who stayed the same hostel in ChengYang. So I guess every traveller follows the same route.

 

4000 Dong people, 800 families in ZhaoXing and highlight here is 5 drum towers. Main dish they eat here is dog and rat. So in case not to mix eating them, I became a temporary vegetarian while my stay.

 

We took a long walk to JiTang. When we were on our way home, an old man stood outside of his house and waved at us to come up to his place. That's a tiny wooden house with pigs are living in the door way. He is about 70 years old, living with his 90 years old father. The old man intended to sell his pipe to us but we told him we were not allowed to bring in to Taiwan.

 

He told us some of his father's friends went to Taiwan long time ago so he wishes one day he could go to Taiwan to visit them. But money is a big issue as it costs RMB 20,000 to get an entry visa done. Knowledge of Taiwan still stayed on the era of Chen-Kai-Shek and Jiang-Jing-Guo.

 

The kind old man suggested we stay there over night, sleep in a bed with his father and him. That was sweet but far too kinky.
